Role: Research Coordinator
I will be coordinating the UKDPC research project called 'The aspirations and priorities of disabled people living in diverse situations.' Until recently I mostly worked on disability and international development issues, but I am now keen to work at a more local level. I am passionate about working for greater equality, particularly so that those are most frequently ignored, or even scape-goated, get equal rights in practice as well as in rhetoric. That is what this research project is about.
